All of the characters in this felt so strong and unique, even though you were only reading about them in around 150 word bursts! The plot really worked with the verse form, and the shift between past and present events was well managed.

"we aren't the worst things we did
or the worst things that happened to us.
We're other stuff too.
Like.. the times we made cereal or watched Buffy the vampire slayer
or helped an old lady off a bus.
We're the good, the bad, and the stupid."
I missed Sarah Crossan writing so much.
This is a story abo...

THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD BOOK I CANNOT EVEN STRESS THIS ENOUGH. I felt it covered such an important issue with such care and it made me so so so grateful I live in Australia. I was absolutely crying my eyes out and it is just so lovely and has to be read!
